HTC One Mini 2 Specs

The HTC One Mini 2 was announced late last night as HTC’s next semi-affordable phone to tackle mid-range international markets. Like last year’s One Mini, it is a slimmed down version of the current HTC flagship – this time the One (M8) – that keeps a similar design without the high-end specs.

It packs a 4.5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 2100mAh battery, and a 13MP camera. It also includes BoomSound front speakers, Sense 6.0, Android 4.4.2, and a design that really does look like a slightly smaller HTC One (M8). 

Below, you will find the full spec list:

  • 4.5-inch HD (720p) display
  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage, micro SD card support up to 128GB
  • 13MP rear camera (BSI sensor with f/2.2 lens), 5MP front camera
  • 2100mAh battery
  • NFC, GPS, BoomSound speakers, micro USB 2.0
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi
  • 137.43 x 65.04 x 10.6mm
  • 137g
  • Nano SIM
  • Android 4.4.2
  • Sense 6.0
  • 2G/2.5G – GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
    3G – WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100 MHz with HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps
    4G – LTE: EMEA: Bands 3, 7, 8, 20; Asia: Bands 1, 3, 7, 8, 28

    This would be a great phone if they didn’t change the specs so much.

    If it was just a normal M8 with a smaller screen, people would buy this like crazy.

    Sometimes you’d swear that HTC doesn’t actually want to sell phones.
    It would be so much simpler for their design teams and for the consumers if it was the same phone, with just a smaller screen and total size.

    • RoadsterHD1

      Right, Like MOTO did with their mini version of the Droid Ultra/MAXX. Same spec’s just a smaller phone. That’s a good “mini me” phone.

  • Cesar

    The Moto X has a larger display packed into a smaller form factor. Yeah, this is really “mini”

  • Mini in terms of display size, but not phone size.

  • Dave

    Didn’t HTC say “less phones” a while back?

  • Spencer Walker

    Please do a camera shootout between the mini 2 desire 816 and one m8

  • LosttsoL

    No thanks HTC. I’ll keep my two year old Razr M which has about the same specs.

  • M3D1T8R

    Really too bad about the gimped ram and processor. Otherwise I love the form factor and the rest of the specs seem adequate. Even the battery, which seems small at first glance, will probably perform just fine with that smaller 720 screen and slower processor. Even one change to 2GB ram would have made this a good product.

  • Sqube

    Why is it that cell phone companies thing “smaller” and “technologically inferior” always, always, always go together? That phone, with that camera, and the specs from the extra-big M8? Spectacular device.

    Not everybody has catcher’s mitts for hands.

  • mcdonsco

    Kind of hilarious that this has a much better camera than its big flagship brother.

    Way to go HTC!

    • LionStone

      So, much better camera = more mp?

      • mcdonsco

        Though not a rule; usually…YES.

        I don’t care what or how many gimmicks you throw at a 4mp camera, its still a 4mp camera and just about every review of it said close to the same.

        I’ll put money on it that side by side, this mini will take far more detailed/cleaner pics than the m8; any day of the week.

        • LionStone

          Yea but it has a f/2.2 so I don’t know how well it’ll do in low light? You may get a little more detail but sacrifice some low light capability perhaps?

        • deskjob

          Completely agree on useless gimmicks. Filters and post-processing are great when done correctly, but there’s only so much they can do to make up for shortcomings in hardware.

          Quick google on the specs show that the camera has 1.1um pixels, which is at the lowend of sensor size nowadays and significantly smaller than the 2.0um of the 4mp ultrapixel version. Also it supposedly cost less than the 4mp sensor, which might have been the actual motivation for HTC. Sensor size is definitely not a gimmick, and this definitely sets up for an interesting comparison between the flagship and little brother in terms of image quality.

          My guess is, under optimal condition with plenty of lighting, the 13MP sensor would produce a sharper picture. With anything less than ideal lighting, the 4MP sensor would produce much better looking photos, as long as you don’t zoom in.

        • LionStone

          More light isn’t a gimmick

          • PoisonApple31

            Duo camera is a gimmick.

    • M3D1T8R

      Not necessarily better.

  • maxx1987


  • The ONE mini TWO.

    This is by far the stupidest naming system I’ve ever heard of.

  • BoFiS

    Still wish it was a 4.3″ 720p HD screen with a Snapdragon 800 to be MORE MINI and compete with the amazing Z1 Compact that sadly has not reached our shores officially :'(

    • Tyler

      Yeah if they put out a 4.3 with specs as good or better than my G2 I’d be all over it.

  • Guy Pierce

    3 Specs pop out at me: Under powered and overpriced. Oh… and stupid.

    • Daistaar

      Where do they mention price? I’m curious to see how the 13MP fares against it’s bigger brother’s 4UP.

      • Guy Pierce

        No mention. I’m simply generalizing the term “Mini”

  • Cael

    This is nothing but a downgraded M7 with a 0.2 inch screen reduction and an upgraded camera. It doesn’t deserve a mini title.

    • The Narrator

      Less ram, less battery, less resolution

      • Cael

        Yes if we want to get more specific than downgraded.

        • The Narrator

          They pulled a Watch Dogs

          • Cael

            evleaks says the HTC One Remix is Verizon’s One Mini 2. Verizon knows whats up.

          • If you’re speaking of the game. Man I’m so waiting on that release on the 27th right along with the announcement of the G3. PS4 has been lacking good titles since it’s release.

    • LionStone

      It’s smaller, so it’s a ‘mini’ version, simple.

      • Cael

        They could have easily rebranded the M7 has the all new HTC One mini.

    • M3D1T8R

      Except it is much skinnier (width) than the M7, and it is being released to market along with the much larger M8, so it is clearly a Mini.

      • Cael


  • The Narrator

    Next up, HTC One 2 Max Two One

  • It took HTC to make the Mini to realize a 13mp camera should’ve been standard. Such ninnyhammers

    • Cael

      They’d probably say it’s cheaper than ultrapixels or that ultrapixels are reserved for our highest of flagships.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Not bad specs, but it always comes down to price. For the M8 though, I’ll take those aligned speakers and that camera
